    My Trip Report

    ALRIGHT! LoL since my "Kind of TR" didn't suffice for most people, here it is:

    Day 1 (May 3)
    After long 5 hr flight arrived in Vegas at 10:45AM. Took taxi to Polo Towers, checked in got a 9th floor strip view room with a balcony. What a view. I could see from the Mandalay all the way down to the Mirage. Sat our stuff down the wondered down to the Paris hotel. We were both starving (BF and I) and line at Le Village was way to long so we walked through to Ballys and had lunch at Sidewalk Cafe (service slow, food bland). Walked back over to pHo, stopped at ABC store to get liquor, snacks, etc. Back to the room for a nap (we were both dead from the flight and the walk) before leaving to see BITE.
    Left room at 6pm. Went to MGM Grand and joined the players club. Took the monorail down to Sahara. Sat there and gambled for a while then walked to the Strat. Dinner at Roxys Diner then BITE started at 10:30PM. After the show we cabbed it down to pHo and sat in Heart Bar for a while, watched the Pleasure Pit dancers, sat on the slots, then called it a night at 3AM.

    Day 2 (May 4)
    BF's dad was in town and wanted to meet up. Walked to Hawaiian Marketplace around 11am, then walked down to Ballys, joined the Total Rewards then took monorail down to LV Hilton to meet BF's dad. Had brunch at the buffet there (was OK, still bland). After that BF, BF's dad, BF's dad girlfriend and I took the monorail down to the Flamingo, walked through that then over to Bellagio. Waited for the fountains only to find they were closed because of wind. Walked to Caesars, shopped at the Forum Shops then back to the room at 5PM. BF's dad had bought tix for Amazing Jonathan so we headed to the pHo at 6:30, had dinner at Cheeseburger then headed to the show.
    Amazing Jonathan was really funny, BF's dad was called onstage for the whole show and it was great. Afterwards we split from the BF's dad and headed to NYNY. I hate that hotel now. Half the slots were closed and the ones that weren't didn't pay out.
    Walked to the trashy castle and drank for a while @ Dicks then went to play video blackjack. Won a little on that. Cabbed it back to the hotel and called it a night at 3AM

    Day 3 (May 5)
    My BIRTHDAY!!! Both of us were dead from the 2 days before (feet hurt) so we chilled in the room till about 1. Cabbed it down to the new Town Square (past Mandalay), did some shopping, got some McDonalds then headed back to the room.
    Left the BF in the room then headed to pHo for my Stripper 101 class. Sat at LaSalsa cantina waiting for the class and got 2 free shots, plus 5 shots of Patron (I paid for) and a free rita. I was drunk. Stripper 101 class was fun but I was really drunk so I don't remember half of that. Went and got the BF and I wanted to do something cool for the B-day (and it was Cinco de Mayo) so we walked to Diablos. 2 1/2 hour wait for anything. F that. Went to MGM Grand and had a quick meal at Studio Cafe. The monte cristo there isn't bad. Walked over to the Trop (my fav horrible hotel), sat there for a while gambling (I won on the slots and the BJ tables). Left there and went to LaSalsa (the one by M&M world). Sat there already drunk, got even drunker, bought a sombrero and I ended up calling it a night at 1AM. I got way to drunk way to fast on this day

    Day 4 (May 6)
    Left the room at 11AM. Took hotels shuttle to Fashion Show and shopped there for a while. Walked over to Wynn and I've got one word for that hotel.....damn. Joined players club, won $50 on $1 slot (after one pull) and headed over to TI. Sat and had a couple drinks at Breeze Bar then back to the room to get ready for dinner.
    Reservations for Casa di Amore @ 6pm. Comp limo came to get us, dropped us off at the restaurant, dinner was awesome I love that restaurant!!! Limo took us back and dropped us off at IP. We hit up IP, O Sheas, Flamingo, and Bills in that order. We were getting ready to hit MGM Grand back up when a man approached us about Penthouse Club. We took the bait, got a ride in a Caddy to the Penthouse Club. Ended up staying there till 3AM and cabbed it back to the room. Stayed up for a little bit on the balcony and called it a night at 4AM.

    Day 5 (May 7)
    Up @ 10:30AM. Had booked a room at HOOTERS for this night so we headed over there. 11:30AM, room not ready so BF called his dad and he wanted to meet at Paris. So we left our bag at Hooters then cabbed it to Paris. Had lunch with BF's dad at Le Village (which wasn't that great). Split from them then headed back to Hooters. Room was ready. Went and freshened up then headed to the trashy castle to get on the tram to Mandalay. Got to Mandalay, gambled for a while, walked to EYECANDY, nothing going on there, so we walked to Luxor and man how that place is changing. It's all blue now. Ate at Little Caesars in the Luxor food court then cabbed it back to Hooters. Sat at the Hooters bar, had some pitchers, sat on the slots, got really drunk, then called it a night at 3AM.

    Day 6 (May 8)
    Checked out of Hooters at 10AM and back to Polo Towers, showered got ready, then cabbed it to Caesars Palace. Walked around in there again then went to Casino Royale for $1 ritas. After that headed to Madame Tussads (had 2 for 1 coupon). Walked around there then went into the Venetian, ate a Nathans hot dog, walked through to Palazzo, won $20 on 25 cent slot in Palazzo then cabbed it to Fremont Street about 3pm.
    Everything was dead downtown so we decided to see a movie. Went and saw Ironman. Then went to Jillians to bowl but upon arriving the person at the shoe counter was a total d*ck and wouldn't let us place because they didn't open officially until 5PM and it was 4:58. TWO MINUTES so we said screw it and walked over to Fremont. Street was still dead so we ate at the Binion's Coffee Shop, came out, was about dark, walked to Golden Gate, had 99 cent shrimp. Texted AngelChick, she was on the strip. So we wondered around Golden Nugget, Vegas Club, and Fremont Hotel, then the light show started. That looks really cool when you're drunk as hell. Needed to sober a little so we went to Plaza and played BINGO. That got done at 11PM and we went to Glitter Gulch. Sat in there till 4AM and had to leave because we were both so drunk neither one of us could move. We actually needed help TO the door and to the cab station at the Plaza. Cabbed it back to the room, called it a night at 5:30AM, just as the sun was coming up.

    Day 7 (May 9)
    After a LONG night of puking I finally got up at 2PM and washed a load of clothes at our hotel (we'd been there for a week, drinking non-stop, I was about ready to go home). Left the room around 3PM and went to Del Taco. Cabbed it back down to TI so BF could get a shirt he saw there. Then walked to the Mirage, checked out the conservatory, sat on the slots for a while, didn't win a dime. Walked BACK to Caesars, had lunch at Stage Deli (was alright). Walked to Bellagio again, checked out the conservatory then went to Monte Carlo. Won some on the $1 slots then went to NYNY. Had a beer then went back to the trashy castle, ate at Sherwood Forest cafe (line for Dicks was tooo long). After that we cabbed it back to the room at 11pm to actually get sleep for the flight home the next day.

    Day 8 (May 10)
    LAST DAY THERE AND 8 DAYS IS TO LONG TO BE IN VEGAS WITHOUT A RENTAL CAR!! Got up, packed, left our bags with the bell desk then went to Harley Davidson cafe. Food was HORRIBLE and we left there without paying a dime. Walked around pHo just to kill time, then headed back to Polo Towers. Got our stuff then headed to the airport for our 4PM flight back to Florida.

    ------------------------------

    All in all, had a really good time. I am going back with my best friend in October (either staying at IP or Bills, this is a budget trip). 8 days is a long time to be there with no rental car. If I'd had a car I would've rode to Red Rock, Red Rock resort, out to Lake Mead and even CA (since my grandpa lives in Long Beach). The food in Vegas just all tastes bland (but then again we didn't really eat anywhere fancy, paying $100 for a steak is just stupid). But I'm from the south where we FRY everything so that could be why.

    No we had a smoking room (but it didn't smell like smoke at all). We only stayed there because BF's mom has a timeshare and we got the whole week for $139 (timeshare exchange fee). I'm going back in October for 5 days and either staying at Bills or IP. BF"s mom offered the timeshare again but I don't want to stay there. There's no casino, no bar, no entertainment at all. The closest entertainment is pHo.
